The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Pediatrics was awarded a cooperative agreement, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Practice and Implementation Centers by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in September 2014. The primary purpose of the FASD Practice and Implementation Center for Pediatrics is to develop, test and disseminate innovative training for pediatricians to decrease stigma associated with the FASD assessment process and increase capacity and willingness to diagnose the full spectrum of disorders associated with prenatal alcohol exposure. Through a partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the University of California- San Diego, the merged Discipline-Specific Workgroup (DSW) will develop asynchronous, on-demand, web-based programs based on the core competencies of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Competency-Based Curriculum Development Guide for Medical and Allied Health Education and Practice (CDC, 2009; 2015).
